​ .ExternalClass div.WordSection1 { } The Manitoba First Nations School System (MFNSS) is a leader in First Nations Education and works in partnership with First Nations to ensure student success. The MFNSS logo portrays geese flying in formation, conveying the importance of respectful communication and teamwork. When geese fly in a V-formation, the leader rotates back into formation when tired and another takes the point position. There are five geese depicted in the logo, representing five nations, Anishinaabeg, Ininiwak, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline, and Anishininiwak. The two wings emulate the eagle wings of the MFNERC logo, while the space between the wings illustrate life-giving water and a nurturing spirit. The four colours reflect the medicine wheel, and the teachings held within it. The logo is based on the teachings which serve as a foundation for the MFNSS, and the success of our students: Identity, Partnership, Support, Communication and Commitment.
